About the property

2bed, 2bath condo @ Northstar!!

Cozy 2 bed, 2 bath condo in an awesome location at Northstar! Lets hope for snow like last season!!

Please note that I do everything possible to keep my rates as reasonable as they are: arrival is after 3PM and depature is by 10AM. A late checkout is avaialble, but does come with an additional charge and needs to be determined at the time of booking.

Our condo is in the trees - just step outside to hike or bike the mountain, or take a quick walk to the village and the recreation center. A quick drive to the quaint mountain town of Truckee and 20 minutes from Lake Tahoe.

The ski trails condos all have slight differences in terms of location, and interiors now as many owners have remodeled these "Old Northstar" condos over the years. Ours is on Coyote Fork, and set back a bit from the village. Steps from the slopes and surrounded by trees!

The condo has two bedrooms. The upstairs Bedroom (King) and Mainfloor bedroom (Queen). Currently one twin aero bed mattress (plug in blow up/down - easy to do and comfortable enough for the kiddos). The couch does not pull out. You are welcome to squeeze in more than 4 if you would like, up to 6.

We have owned this condo for 16 years (purchased when our daughter was less than one year old - in January of 2002.) She is now 16, Where does the time go? We remodeled the condo right after we purchased it & remodeled the upstairs bathroom again in 2016! We love the knotty pine feel throughout that really lets you know you are in the mountains, as well as the views out the windows of the trees and surrounding mountains

PLEASE READ - A bit about my rates:

(1)Arrival is after 3PM and departure is by 10AM. Please note these times are what enable me to keep my rates reasonable.

(2) If you would ike a late check out, we need to plan this up front at the time of booking, and if it is possible a late checkout is from $75-$100 depending on the time, and the season ($100 in ski season)

(2) Cleaning fee: The condo will be clean, the linens and towels upon your arrival.

(3) Taxes: I pay occupancy taxes of 10 percent to the county. These are listed separately in the quote (can't avoid the tax man!)

(4) Property Damage: I do not require property damage deposits for retrurning guests. For new guests I require either (1) a fullly refundable security deposit or (2) a non refundable $35 accidential damange amount which protects you against accidential damage up to $400. Please indicate which one you would prefer.

(5) VRBO Service fee: This fee is a processing fee which is charged directly by VRBO to the travelor. It does not go to me.

PLEASE NOTE: I keep the calendar current but please understand that I often have multiple inquiries which often overlap the same requested dates during busy season. Please understand that your dates are not booked until I receive your first payment. Thanks!!

About Cathy Lang

We live in the Bay Area and bought this condo shortly after our daughter was born as we wanted to keep skiing as a family, and it has been perfect for that. Over the years, we have grown to love Tahoe just as much in the summer months.

Why Cathy Lang chose Truckee

We love skiing, Northstar is an excellent family ski resort. This condo is in a perfect location - with a bit of snow you can easily walk down the parking lot to get on the green slopes, or now there is a ski back (blue) that comes right by our building.

What makes this condo unique

We picked this condo from a few that were on the market due to the excellent view of the mountain range and trees. We remodeled this condo into a two bed, two bath condo - shortly after we purchased it We love the knotty pine feel throughout, and we absolutely love the location. Please absolutely feel free to contact me with any questions about Northstar you may have. it is a great place for a family vacation, winter or summer- there is so much to do at Northstar and the surrounding Lake Tahoe area.

Perfect for our family

Our 3 year old loved running through the woods on the way to the village (and through the village). Great location and condo... lovely views of the trees and nice high ceilings makes it feel larger!

Comfortable, bright, lovely condo!

  • 4 of 5

Our family stayed in the condo for a week and enjoyed every minute! The couch is perfect for lazy mornings and tv watching in the evening. The kitchen is small, but well equipped with lots of pots and pans. The configuration of the bedrooms and bathrooms worked very well for our family. We can't wait to come back soon.
